Sette Ponti Estate

This post is also available in: Italiano (Italian)

The Sette Ponti Estate is one of the properties of the Moretti family – already acknowledged in the fashion field – and it is located in the district of Castiglione Fibocchi, in Valdarno: the very places depicted in the works of Leonardo da Vinci, in the heart of Chianti, renowned for wines and for Chianina meat farms.

The estate is not far from the historic city of Arezzo: plunged into an evocative rural landscape, it is crossed by the Oreno stream and was named by Antonio Moretti who wanted to honour the so-called “via dei Sette Ponti” (the “Seven Bridge Road”) which connects the banks of the Arno River between Florence and Arezzo.

This estate was originally a property of the Savoy – Aosta princes who had acquired it from Leopold of Habsburg. The oldest vineyard was planted in 1935 by Duke Amedeo d’Aosta, viceroy of Ethiopia, and was called “Vigna dell’Impero” to commemorate the Italian victory in the African war. That very vineyard covers about 7.4 terraced acres thanks to the ingenuity and wisdom of the original farmers. Its construction had to cope with a 30% difference in height: filling the ground and terracing were thus the perfect solutions.

In the 1950s, the Morettis bought the first vineyard of 123 acres but soon reached a total 815 acres of property, some 120 of which are now planted with vines with a density of about 7.000 plants per hectare; the rest is used for woods.
The vineyards grow at an altitude of about 984 ft above sea level, on the soil featuring a mixture of clay, sand, limestone and typical Chianti marlstone.
